 Cloths Drying Energy Saving Tips

  1. Separate clothes for drying purposes. Lightweight synthetics dry much faster than bath towels or natural fiber materials such as denim.
  2. Don't over-dry clothes. Take clothes out while they are still slightly damp. This will reduce the need for ironing. Over-drying also causes shrinkage, increases static electricity, and shortens fabric life.
  3. Dry two or more loads in a row. Take advantage of the heat still in the dryer from the first load.
  4. Don't add wet items to a load that is partially dry. This will cause the dryer to run longer. Dry full loads when possible. Drying small loads wastes energy.
  5. Clean the lint trap after each load. A clogged lint trap will restrict air flow and reduce dryer performance.
  6. Check the vent to the outside. Proper ventilation is important for the proper operation of your dryer. Keep it clean and free from obstruction.
  7. Use a "solar clothes dryer" - hang clothes outdoors. In good weather, take advantage of the sun... it's free.
